Grand Ball

Toward the conclusion of the festival, there will be a ball, so dress to impress! King Qalinor will be in attendance, so no weapons will be allowed in the pavilion, except those carried by a select few who will be guarding the King closely.

Coliseum

A coliseum has been built in the festival grounds with four practice arenas and one main arena. In the arenas you can fight against each other. A maximum of two people can be in a specific arena at any one time. No spells over level 10 can be used. The cloak of shadows retribution effect will be disabled as well. No taking familiars, animal companions, demons, etc in with you. You have to fight on your own. If someone is already in an arena when you try to enter, you'll be told who is there. Each arena has a viewing room, so people can watch the fights and yell or heckle. If you die in the arena, medics are on-hand to move you to the infirmary and get you cleaned up; let it be noted that you will not lose deeds if you die. You will also be charged a small fee for being tended to by the medical staff. The only compensation you get for killing each other is bragging rights. Any fighting done in the arenas will be considered consensual.

Combatant Selection

Contestants for the grand tournament will be chosen by citizen only raffles in all cities (Ta'Vaalor, Ta'Illistim, Cysaegir, Zul Logoth, Icemule, Solhaven, River's Rest, Kharam Dzu, Wehnimer's Landing, and Mist Harbor). A total of four contestants from each town will be selected to represent their town in the tournament. If four names are not drawn in a town, a new raffle, that is open to everyone, will be set up in that town to fill the remaining slots. We'll announce when and where these raffles will be set up shortly. The raffles are not restricted by level, so players of any level may participate (tournament will not be bracketed by level so enter at your own risk). The top two combatants will be awarded custom post-name titles.

  • Cysaegir: Archales
  • Icemule Trace: Roblar
  • Kharam Dzu: Rolfard
  • Mist Harbor: Durakar and Barthollomew

Morphing Armor

"Are you tired of trying to find the right shirt to offset your clunky armor? Or scrambling to change out of that armor and into a nice gown to head to the ball? Wouldn’t you feel safer having that armor with you at all times? Then do we have a product for you.

Mazreth taps a zelnorn breastplate inlaid with an eahnor wyvern that he is wearing.

Mazreth runs his fingers over the surface of his zelnorn breastplate. A soft WHIR accompanies the metallic gnashing of gears as his breastplate transforms into a shimmering crimson aqilorn shirt.
